>>> good morning to our viewers in the west. it is wednesday, november 7th, 2012. welcome to "cbs this morning." president obama wins big, telling americans "the best is yet to come." governor mitt romney says "i pray the president will be successful." >> the democrats tighten their control of the senate, while the house stays in republican hands. >>> and governor jerry brown talks politics and prop 30. >>> but we begin this morning with a look at today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >> and we know in our hearts for the united states of america, the best is yet to come. >> the voters speak. huge victory for president obama. >> winning pretty much all of the key battleground states, including ohio. >> we are not as divided as our politics suggest. we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. we are and forever will be the united states of america. >> the crowd here in chicago is going bananas. >> there is just this sense of deflation and defeat in this room. >> i so wish that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction, but the nation chose another leader. >> the president has been re-elected, but nobody's put the stamp of approval on his program. >> the republicans have maintained control of the house of representatives. the democrats will still be in charge of the senate. >> it's now whether president obama decides to come into office, use this victory as an opportunity to make compromises with the republicans. >> apparently, all he those do is show up in a nice suit, give them free health care, save the auto industry and kill bin laden, and that old girl will put out. >> the senate battle in massachusetts, elizabeth warren beat incumbent republican scott brown. >> tammy baldwin has become the first openly gay candidate to win a u.s. senate seat. >> all that -- >> ohio will go for obama. >> percent certainty? >> 99.95%. >> we've got to be careful about calling things. we've got to be very cautious about intruding on this process. >> well, folks -- >> hold on, hold on -- >> i worked for the guy who balanced the budget. you came in and exploded it and now you're complaining to me? >> and all that matters. >> it's never too early to start talking about the next election. [ laughter ] right? >> and you know that somebody's planning it. >> on "cbs this morning." >> two years, $3 billion, and we are clearly in the same [ bleep ] place we were when it started. captioning funded by cbs >>> welcome to "cbs this morning." it is 7:00 a.m. on the west coast and america is waking up this morning almost exactly where we were four years ago. president barack obama wins a second term, republicans hold the house, democrats control the senate. we begin with the white house. president obama defeated governor mitt romney by a narrow but decisive margin. as many experts predicted it was ohio that put the president over the top late last night. >> cbs news estimates mr. obama has won 303 electoral votes to 206 for romney. florida is still too close to call. as predicted, the popular vote is much closer. about 50% of americans voted for the president, while 48% chose romney. we have complete election coverage this morning, beginning with nancy cordes in chicago. she covered president obama's victory speech, which was just a few hours ago. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, norah and charlie. well, in the end, this race wound up just about exactly where the obama campaign had predicted it would, with the president sweeping almost every battleground state. today he returns to washington to begin the hard work of repairing frayed relationships with the other side after a bitter, sometimes petty campa n campaign. it was well after midnight when the president, vice president and their families hugged and waved to supporters from the stage at mccormick place after president obama declared victory. >> tonight, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward. >> this is a cbs news special report. >> reporter: in the end, the popular vote was close, reflecting a deeply divided nation. >> the president has about a million more votes. >> reporter: but the president won an out-sized victory in the electoral college, by nearly running the table in the nine battleground states. >> the state of iowa, cbs news projects, will go to president obama. barack obama will be the winner in virginia. cbs news is projecting that president obama has won the state of ohio. >> reporter: a hoarse, but clearly relieved president obama, said he had spoken to governor romney by phone and congratulated him on a hard-fought campaign. >> in the weeks ahead, i also look forward to sitting down with governor romney to talk about where we can work together to move this country forward. >> reporter: in his 20-minute speech, mr. obama tried to heal some of the wounds created by months of harsh accusations, half-truths and a billion-dollar barrage of negative ads. >> our economy is recovering. a decade of war is ending. a long campaign is now over. [ cheers and applause ] and whether i earned your vote or not, i have listened to you, i have learned from you, and you've made me a better president. and with your stories and your struggles, i return to the white house more determined and more inspired than ever about the work we have left to do and the future that lies ahead. >> reporter: what lies ahead most immediately is the fiscal cliff, the toxic combination of deep spending cuts and tax increases set to go into effect at the end of this year. economists have warned it could plunge the nation back into a recession if congress and the president can't come up with some kind of compromise. and norah and charlie, we've learned this morning that house speaker john boehner has planned a press conference for 3:30 this afternoon to try to get his message out there in front of the president. this is a showdown that has been brewing for months. >> nancy, thank you. governor romney waited until after midnight eastern time to concede the race. jan crawford is in boston, where the republican nominee spoke to his supporters. jan, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, charlie. good morning, norah. romney actually waited about an hour to concede after ohio was projected to go for the president. that, of course, being the must-win state. everyone knew at that point the race was basically over, but the campaign wanted to see some of those actual votes come in, just to make sure. and then of course, advisers tell me once they saw colorado go for the president, they knew that was it, so governor romney picked up the phone and called the president. >> this election is over, but our principles endure. i believe that the principles upon which this nation was founded are the only sure guide to a resurgent economy and to renewed greatness. >> reporter: a defeated mitt romney was gracious. >> i believe in america. i believe in the people of america. >> reporter: after running for president for 17 months, his campaign came up empty. >> like so many of you, paul and i have left everything on the field. we have given our all to this campaign. >> reporter: there was clear disappointment, as the reality of what could have been sank in. >> i also want to thank ann, the love of my life. [ cheers and applause ] she would have been a wonderful first lady. >> reporter: almost immediately came the question, what happened? the attack ads hurt. >> this was a booming place, and mitt romney and bain capital turned it into a junkyard. >> reporter: critics say romney didn't do enough to counter them, and after a strong first debate, he wasn't able to keep the momentum going. then came hurricane sandy that took the focus off romney in the final week of the campaign. romney had expected to win. earlier in the day, he told reporters he had written only one speech, a victory speech. >> it's about 1,118 words, and i'm sure it will change before i'm finished because i haven't passed it around to my family and friends and advisers to get their reactions. >> reporter: but in the end, he delivered a concession speech lasting just five minutes. >> i so wish that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction, but the nation chose another leader. and so, ann and i join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation. thank you and god bless america! >> reporter: now, you could really see the sadness on romney as he gave that speech last night. it was a hard-fought campaign, and as he said, he didn't leave anything on the table, but there's also something more. not only was this the end of the campaign for romney, but it's really the end of his political life. his wife, ann, said last night that he will not be running for office again. charlie and norah? >> jan crawford, thank you. in our exit polling, voters gave us a lot of information about some of the factors that influenced their vote. anthony mason has been going over all that data and anthony, what nuggets did you find? >> norah, a couple key groups that backed the president in 2008 rallied behind him again. the president won 55% of the women's vote, about the same margin he won women by four years ago. among hispanics, he won 71% and actually improved his margins over 2008. that's important, because the hispanic vote is actually growing, and it was 9% of the electorate four years ago. >> some high-profile senate victories this morning. there was much money spent but not a whole lot of change when it comes to congress. >> we're watching how those races played out. byron, what happened to the balance of power in congress? >> well, norah, in many ways, it stayed exactly how it was in the house and the senate. first in the senate, democrats keep control of the u.s. senate. they won 52 seats. the independents have one. republicans picked up 45 seats. and we're still waiting on results from two states, north dakota and montana. looking at our battleground map, democrats won everywhere they were supposed to and a few surprises. take missouri. their incumbent, democratic senator claire mccaskill, defeats republican todd akin. in january, republicans thought this was an easy pickup for them, but then akin made his comment about what he called "legitimate rape," and his campaign virtually collapsed. in indiana, a reliably red state, their democrat, joe donnelly, wins against tea party-backed republican richard mourdock. in a recent debate, mourdock said if rape results in pregnancy, it is "god's will." that likely turns off women and moderates in that race, and republicans lost there. >> byron pitts, thank you very much. we now go to look at a long election night as cbs news political director john dickerson and national journal white house correspondent major garrett join us. let me just ask the big question. when you look back at this election, what are the lessons that all people ought to learn, both republicans and democrats? >> well, for the president, he has a second term, but he has a lower electoral vote total and a lower popular vote total. the president is historic in many respects on this morning, but he's historic in one sense that people may not be familiar with. he's the first american president since andrew jackson to win a re-election with a lower popular vote percentage than he won his first time. we don't do that in american politics. when we re-elect a president, we typically embrace that president even more strongly than the first time. the president's not in that political category, but he has won re-election and he has a mandate based on what he makes of it. many political scientists say the idea of a mandate is basically fiction. >> we learned something about the shape of the electorate. in 2008, the obama campaign decided they were going to build a coalition out of young voters, minority voters and college-educated women. they did that again. they did it in a slightly different ways and different regions of the country, but the president get a smaller share of the white vote, but the white vote shrunk, and he got a larger share -- well, the white vote actually stayed about the same, it's been shrinking since 1990, '92, but he got a larger vote of the minority vote, hispanics and african-americans, and they shaped what the electorate was going to look like and they worked that and worked that, and that tells us something about the electorate. we've had two campaigns in a row like this. what it's going to look like for the next campaign. >> and that's what republicans have to learn, i assume, the changing nature of voting. >> the changing demographics in america and the changing cultural matrix in america. what are the cultural issues that are wedge or are unifying issues? president obama's campaign found them in 2008, reinforced them in 2012. republicans thought they understood them. they did not. >> they have to meet the country where it is. >> look at the hispanic vote, which is the fastest growing part of the electorate in this country. obama won about 71% of that vote, romney just 27%. i mean, that's less than john mccain, which a lot of people thought was a poor showing. george w. bush got 40%. how does the republican party go forward? >> well, it has to change its message, it has to change its definition of what constitutes immigration reform. i wrote a column at "the national journal" saying on immigration, we have a con census and we are implementing a consensus about border security. what we're not talking about is the other elements of immigration reform and republicans have to use marco rubio, susana martinez, governor of new mexico, sandoval from nevada, hispanic americans who are republicans to forge a different conversation, because if they don't, this trend line will continue. >> well, i look at african-americans, the situation's even worse for the republican party. they don't have a roster like the ones major just outlined there, and they're doing much worse with african-american voters. >> how is it that the polls showed us that this was extraordinarily tight. many republicans said the polls are wrong, that it's not going to be the same as the 2008 electorate. what did we learn? >> the most important thing in my estimation was the partisan split. you know what that was in 2008? exactly the same thing, and what did republicans tell us throughout this campaign, especially down the stretch? we're not going to see that partisan divide, we're not going to see that split. there will be more republicans. we have enthusiasm, we have intensity, our people are going to show up. guess what, they didn't, or the numbers they had were insufficient to counter that partisan spread, democrats to republicans. romney won the independents, but guess what? it didn't matter. >> but does that mean the republicans didn't turn out their vote? >> it means there are fewer republicans -- >> right. >> -- than there used to be, and the long shadow of the george w. bush presidency continues to strike something that is injurious and undercutting about republican low turnout. >> people who label themselves as republicans, and that's key here, because in ohio, governor romney won independents by ten points, and romney people were saying there is no fwhay this world, if he wins independents, he's going to lose ohio, just won't work. but what independents are in ohio is what they used to call themselves republicans. they just don't want to call themselves republicans, and they refuse, the romney campaign refused to recognize that change. >> after president obama's election in 2008, he has referred to this constantly in this campaign that mitch mcconnell said our role is to defeat president obama, not to find solutions to the country's problems. >> remember that was said in october of 2010. i know that well because it was my interview. >> yeah. >> so it was 2010 -- >> it was not right after -- >> it was not right after the president was re-elected and mitch mcconnell said we want the president to work with us if he's willing to. i don't want to defeat him as much as i want to change his mind, but if i can't, i want to defeat him. well, you didn't defeat him and now your majority is smaller. what are you going to do with that reality? >> do you think he'll compromise? >> i think everyone in politics understands elections matter and elections come with verdicts and you have to adapt to whatever the verdict is. mitch mcconnell runs again next two years and he may face a primary challenge that may change his tactic a little bit. >> that's the senate. let's talk about the house quickly, too. we saw that republicans maintained control of the house. speaker john boehner continues, presumably, his speakership. were there less tea party members or was it mostly the same? >> it's mostly the same. he faces the same challenge from the tea party members, and the question here is who is the republican spokesman? they're all taking different strategies. mitch mcconnell is saying the same thing, john boehner has a different agenda. those tea party members in the house who are going to take a different message from this election will have their own agenda. so, who's going to speak for the party? >> this is not a specific problem to be addressed right now, but i'm wondering what role bill clinton might play in a second administration, or whether he continues to have the global role he does, because he was instrumental, i understand. >> i think he'll rest up for the first hillary clinton administration, charlie. >> in 2016. but people who work for bill clinton, the chief of staff and joe biden's chief of staff, other people, they're all clinton people. they do have better relationships on the hill. there's been a chance to put those bridges together. now after an election, we'll see if they can do it. >> and joe biden, the so-called happy warrior, as the president called him last night, will he run for president in 2016? >> he hinted at it. about a week and a half ago, he said i'll see you in my 2016 campaign, he's hinted at it, and the white house wonders openly if that's not a part of his agenda. >> and he has a role to play after the upcoming >> announcer: this national weather report sponsored by big lots. big savings. this is the leo diamond.

>> she'll need to reach older, white, male voters. so, the two leading vp contenders are a 1962 chevy impala and a can of beer. >> welcome back to "cbs this morning." we're focusing on why president obama won a second term and the next step for him and the republicans. with us now, former michigan governor jennifer granholm, now the host of "war room" on current tv, also republican strategist rick davis, campaign manager for john mccain in 2008. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> governor granholm, good morning. it was a long night last night and we're pleased that you're here this morning. is there a mandate for the president coming out of this election, governor granholm? >> i think there is. i think there is. you can't see him. and he's going to have a 332 electoral vote margin. he's got almost a 3 million advantage in the popular vote, about 2.6 with not all of the democratic states fully counted. i think you're going to see that he has a mandate -- in fact, the exit polls show that he has a mandate certainly on the issues that have divided the parties interestingly, for example, on tax reform. 60% of the people in exit polls said that they believed that taxes should be raised on the wealthy. only one in ten people believe that the deficit was the number one issue. on the flip side of that, he says he'll have a huge opportunity with these republicans on immigration reform and on climate change/energy, job creation in the united states, the role of government. i think it's a fantastic win for america, because i think those are all issues that democrats and republicans can unite on, if people are rational. >> does he have a mandate to cut entitlement, if that's what's necessary to reach a grand bargain? >> well, i think people want to see compromise. i mean, they did give him a republican house, but that doesn't mean it's a mandate for the house to obstruct. so, there will be compromise, and the president has said that he believes there ought to be reforms to entitlements, but he doesn't want to see benefits cut and he doesn't want to harm the middle class, so i think there is grounds to work, whether it's a frame work like simpson/bowles or not, there is a opportunity for a grand bargain and he had hae has the leverage to lead that discussion. >> rick davis, with mccain's campaign in 2008, when you look at romney's campaign, what went wrong, and was it because they failed to court the minority vote? >> yes, amazing how similar the outcome is this year with 2008. and what's different is 2008 was really a transformational election. you see those huge swings in the house, senate and the presidency at that time. so, this one was actually a much more quiet election, more on the margins. a couple of states changed, and that's about it. especially after the enormous amount of money that was spent to try and effect change. so, i think the outcome was what you describe. i mean, there are certain holes in the electorate that republicans have done a poor job of reaching out to. certainly, minorities, hispanics especially deserve more attention by our party and a real look at what we need to do to get them into our party. >> can the candidate -- >> and i would say women, too. >> go ahead, jennifer granholm. >> i was just going to say, women, too! i mean, that's not just a little niche group. that is a huge group. 18-point margin the president w
